This beautiful mural caught my eye and is one I like to visit lately. It is beautiful and powerful. Very beautiful. Very powerful.
This mural titled Nuestra Ofrenda was created by artist Roberto Romo (www.robertoromo.net) to honor and bring attention to those who save lives and increase life quality for others by donating organs and tissues.
On it you will find lots of symbolism as well as the portraits of two local donors, Nancy Yahayra Gutierrez and Brandon Castellanos, who donated from themselves to save others. The plaque explains quite a bit and you can also read it online here: https://www.localcolorsj.org/fpa-nuestra-ofrenda
If you go by in the evening you will find that the ceramic heart, a work of art in itself, that is part of the mural is back lit and it creates a wonderful effect.
People live when other people donate organs and tissues. What a beautiful way to remind us and to say thank you to those who give. I really appreciate this mural.
